Cleveland Released Amazon HQ2 Bid Proposal; Health Care Workers Face Violence In Workplace

Cleveland joined more than 200 other cities in bending over backward to entice Amazon to bring its second headquarters here. The bid failed, and the details have been a secret because the city refused to say what it offered. Last week, a judge -- ruling on Channel 5's request to see the bid -- ordered the details to be released. What did Cleveland offer? Cleveland.com's Mark Naymik discusses 3.5 billion in financial incentives and other enticements in the city's proposal. Later, the CEO of the Cleveland Clinic says health care workers, especially in emergency rooms, are facing an epidemic of workplace violence. Our "Be Well" Health team looks into it.
